 Interesting places to visit in Vienna

4. Friedensrich Hundertwasser - Hundertwasserhaus - Kalke Village, Vienna

Vienna (Wien): Sculptured 'Baroque' decoration on a house where the coach stopped to visit the Hundertwasser Village!

A bit of a contrast to what follows!

Vienna (Wien): A painter creates architecture - the philosophy behind these 'modernistic' buildings! Friedensreich Hundertwasser: "I want to show how simply it actually is to have Paradise on earth". "The straight line is alien to mankind .... only uses it where functionality demands. Its closeness to nature - its shapes - its colours, these are the principal elements of Hundertwasser Village".

Vienna (Wien): The entrance to the Kalke Village and the 'Toilet of Modern Art' built in the 1970's. The Hundertwasserhaus by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, designed to counter the clinical look of modern architecture and is one of Vienna's most popular tourist attractions. The artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser (named himself so in 1949) was born Friedrich Stowasser in 1928 in Vienna.

 

Vienna (Wien): The architecture of the Hundertwasser Village is unique and designed to make you think!

Vienna (Wien): Inside the Kalke Village, Vienna - shops, cafes and bars.

 

 

 

 

Vienna (Wien): The Toilet of Modern Art, Vienna!

 

 

 Another toilet of modern art, just down the street, in a tourist shop and a free WC!
